Configure IP addresses and IP subnet masks on router interfaces, given a functioning router
Linux can be a terrific "poor man’s" router. It takes a little more startup configuration than a typical
hardware router, but once it is going, very little will stop it, at least in our experience. We’ve been using
the router setup detailed below in production for six months now (a few months more worth of
pilot-testing), and the only faults we’ve encountered were either service-provider related or due to
water-soaked cables -- unbelievable, but true, and a really long story I won’t get into here!...
This lab is a build-to-specifications test. Numerous issues need to be addressed for this lab to work correctly. The lab
illustrates some of the different ways to configure a router as a frame relay switch and emphasizes the differences
between a partially meshed switch and a fully meshed switch. When you thoroughly understand the differences
between each configuration, you will be prepared to configure your own frame relay switch for any given practice
After studying this chapter students will be able to: Explain how network layer protocols and services support communications across data networks, explain how routers enable end-to-end connectivity in a small to medium-sized business network, determine the appropriate device to route traffic in a small to medium-sized business network, Configure a router with basic configurations.
This chapter include objectives: Configure EIGRP automatic summarization, configure EIGRP manual summarization, configure a router to propagate a default route in an EIGRP network, modify EIGRP interface settings to improve network performance, configure EIGRP authentication to ensure secure routing updates, explain the process and tools used to troubleshoot an EIGRP network.
In this chapter: Describe the components and operations of basic wireless LAN topologies, describe the components and operations of basic wireless LAN security, describe the components and operations of basic wireless LAN security, configure and troubleshoot wireless client access.
Configure a router to propagate a default route in an EIGRP network, modify EIGRP interface settings to improve network performance, configure EIGRP authentication to ensure secure routing updates, explain the process and tools used to troubleshoot an EIGRP network, troubleshoot neighbor adjacency issues in an EIGRP network, troubleshoot missing route entries in an EIGRP routing table.
Application Note 47: Configuring a Windows OpenVPN server and a Digi
TransPort router as an OpenVPN client, this document describes how to configure a Windows OpenVPN server and a WR44 router as an OpenVPN client. OpenVPN can be used for securely connecting the WR44 to a central office network for access to services on the LAN side of the OpenVPN server, such as corporate messaging services, file servers and print servers for example.
This lab will focus on the ability to connect a PC to a router or a switch in order to establish a console
session and observe the user interface. A console session allows the user to check or change the
configuration of the switch or router and is the simplest method of connecting to one of these
This lab should be performed twice, once with a router and once with a switch to see the differences
between the user interfaces. Start this lab with the equipment turned off and with cabling
disconnected. Work in teams of two with one for the router and one for...
Upon completing this lesson, you will be able to:
Use Cisco IOS commands to configure a Frame Relay network, given a functioning router
Use show commands to identify anomalies in the Frame Relay PVCs, given a functioning router and an operational Frame Relay network
Use debug commands to identify events and anomalies in the Frame Relay PVCs, given a functioning router and an operational Frame Relay network
This chapter provides procedures for configuring the basic parameters of your Cisco router, including
global parameter settings, routing protocols, interfaces, and command-line access. It also describes the
default configuration on startup.Individual router models may not support every feature described throughout this guide. Features not
supported by a particular router are indicated whenever possible
This lab teaches the reader to configure and use a terminal server such as a Cisco 2509 or 2511. Although this is a
relatively simple lab, mastery of this material is critically important. If you cannot fully configure a terminal server in
five minutes or less, then you do not know this material well enough. This particular lab is important because, once
you have mastered the ability to build a terminal server quickly, you can work on your other practice scenarios much
Configure each router with the loopback address as indicated in the diagram. Be sure to
configure SanJose1 with additional loopbacks (Lo0, Lo1, Lo2, Lo3). These loopback
interfaces will simulate the serial links to local San Jose sites: Westasman, Baypointe,
Vista, and Eastasman.
Chapter 7 introduce DHCP. Learning objectives in this chapter: Describe the operation of DHCPv4 in a small-to-medium-sized business network, configure a router as a DHCPv4 server, configure a router as a DHCPv4 client, troubleshoot a DHCP configuration for IPv4 in a switched network,...
After studying this chapter you will be able to: Describe the fundamental concepts of Frame Relay technology in terms of Enterprise WAN services including Frame Relay operation, Frame Relay implementation requirements, Frame Relay maps, and LMI operation; configure a basic Frame Relay PVC including configuring and troubleshooting Frame Relay on a router serial interface and configuring a static Frame Relay map.
This chapter shows you how to configure Voice over IP (VoIP) on the Cisco 3600 series. For a
deion of the commands used to configure Voice over IP, refer to the “Voice-Related
Commands” chapter in the Voice, Video, and Home Applications Command Reference.
VoIP enables a Cisco 3600 series router to carry voice traffic (for example, telephone calls and faxes)
over an IP network.
Multiprotocol Label Switching
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a standards-approved technology for
speeding up network traffic flow and making it easier to manage. MPLS involves
setting up a specific path for a given sequence of packets, identified by a label put
in each packet, thus saving the time needed for a router to look up the address to
the next node to forward the packet to. MPLS is called multiprotocol because it
works with the Internet Protocol (IP), Asynchronous Transport Mode (ATM), and
frame relay network protocols....
This chapter presents the basics of configuring the 1900 and 2950 Catalyst switches
as well as Cisco routers. As you continue throughout this book, you will build upon
these fundamental and important concepts for accessing, configuring, and managing
your Cisco devices. I am making the assumption that you have never configured a Cisco device
before and therefore will begin with the very basics by explaining the operating system that these
devices use, the advantages that Cisco’s operating system provides, and how to use some basic
operating system commands to configure your Cisco device....
In this lab, you configure a default route and use RIP to propagate this default information
to other routers. When you have this configuration working, you must migrate the network
from RIP to IGRP and configure default routing to work with that protocol as well.
